called for a plan that would include some spending cuts as well as the elimination of certain tax loopholes and deductions. but republicans are pushing back hard, saying they're done negotiating on taxes. one of those republicans is congressman mack thornberry from texas. he introduced a proposal this week that would delay the cuts for a year while delaying the implementation of obama care until 2016. he says that would save money. with me is that congressman, mack thornberry. thanks for joining me. >> you're welcome. >> let's talk sir about what the house has done. it's voted over 30 times to repeal some or all of obama care that. as you know has gone nowhere because senate democrats and the president are not going to go along with it. so what are your expectations? do you really expect democrats to go along with your plan? >> well, i think they should. obviously obama care is not going to be repealed while the president's in office. and at the same time, we know that more than half the states have said they're not going to set up the exchanges that are called for in obama care.

sin tax. he was deflecting attention. he wasn't shy. he met with the press every other week. it's more than any other president. he was out there. he was careful not to overstate things. careful not to show off too much. >> i want to ask you and this is the last thing, was he a little bit vain because of the eisenhower jacket. he took pains to show off his physiq physique. >> he did. i asked his family about it. he was a buff guy and he looked good in the eisenhower jacket, which he designed. he was vain, aren't we all? he was careful not to show off. >> well, i'll glad you showed off with this book. it's a good one. "ike's bluff." thanks for joining us. >> thanks. >>> the best super bowl ad ever. first, let's get to number five. pictures of kate middleton showing for the first time. evidence of her pregnancy. she did not step out for weeks. she was hospitalized for mourning sickness. she appears in fine form now. we are wishing her well. , we replaced people with a machine. what? customers didn't like it. so why do banks do it? hello? hello?! if your bank doesn't let you talk to

reduce your budget deficit ironically because those people will be working, paying taxes, they won't be drawing on government benefits. when you're into a robust economic recovery, that's when you want to start serious deficit reduction. but if you do it too soon -- and we've seen this in europe. all that austerity. if you do it too soon, not only does it not work on the growth side it actually hurts you on the government debt side. >> okay. politics here, though, with republicans calling for all this deficit reduction -- they control the house -- is it politically not viable for paul krugman and you to get your wish? >> apparently it's less viable than perhaps it ought to be if we were just going on the economics. look, i think the thing that maybe paul and certainly me are both saying is, it may be unrealistic to expect more stimulus spending at a time like this. but i don't think it's inrealistic to take a hippocratic oath and say do no ham. that is don't take another $85 billion of government spending out of the economy willy nilly by letting the sequester kick in on march
